A Dental Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan gives the flexibility of multiple plan options designed to give you the freedom to visit any licensed in-network dental provider, without a referral.

MetLife is committed to ensuring your oral health and saving you time and money through network-based plans. Visiting a network dentist with MetLife helps you…

Save money – Because network dentists accept the negotiated fees or maximum allowable charges (MACs) as payment-in-full for covered services, there’s no balance billing and you save more out of pocket.

Preventive Incentive – All Class I diagnostic and preventative services such as cleanings, exams and x-rays do not count toward your annual maximum. This leaves you with more benefit dollars to use for other covered services.

Smile for Health – Maternity dental benefit provides pregnant women an additional dental cleaning during pregnancy. This extra cleaning can help to prevent periodontal (gum) disease, which has been linked to premature and low-birthweight babies, as well as help control pregnancy gingivitis.

Predeterminations – Upon your request, our network providers will submit predeterminations before performing a procedure. You’ll know up front if the treatment is covered and how much you can expect to pay out of pocket.

Out-of-Network Benefits – If your doctor is not in the Advantage Plus network you still have access to dental benefits paid on a varied reimbursement schedule. You also have the option to nominate them for in-network status. Call (703) 526-6880 for details.
